The well-known tourist attraction of Mui Ne in the south central province of Binh Thuan will be developed into a national hub for sea resort and sport tourism.
Under a master plan for the development of Mui Ne National Tourism Site in 2025 with a vision to 2030, which has been approved by the Prime Minister recently, Mui Ne’s infrastructure will be completed to attract strategic investors, making it an important site in the tourism industry of the coastal south central region and the whole country.
In 2030, Mui Ne National Tourism Site is envisioned to become one of the top destinations in the Asia-Pacific region.
The site is hoped to welcome about 9 million visitors, including 1.5 million foreigners in 2025. The respective figures are expected to reach 14 million and 2.5 million in 2030.
Tourism revenue of the site is set to hit about 24 trillion VND (1.03 billion USD) in 2025 and about 50 trillion in 2030, according to the planning. The local tourism industry is expected to create 24,000 direct jobs in 2025 and more than 45,000 jobs in 2030.
The plan makes clear that traditional markets such as Russia, European and Southeast Asian countries will continue to be developed, while necessary steps will be taken to tap into the high-end section of the Chinese and Northeast Asian markets such as the Republic of Korea and Japan.
Major products of Mui Ne include sea-based tourism, eco-tourism and sport tourism.
Alongside, Mui Ne will also develop cultural tourism, community-based and urban tourism.
Mui Ne beach, with its warm and windy climate, has been favoured by surfers from the UK, France, Russia, Germany, and Australia. It also consists of massive sand dunes, suitable for activities such as sand-boarding.
Mui Ne boasts many attractive landscapes such as Hon Rom, Hon Lao Cau and Bai Rang. Coming to this beach, travellers also have the chance to witness the daily life of fishermen in a humble fishing village.
Last year, Phu Quoc island in Kien Giang and Mui Ne beaches of Vietnam have been listed among 20 most idyllic beaches in Asia by CNN travel.
